Default Small gap in edges?

I just got my Bataleon evil twin and there is a tiny gap in the edges on the tail, is this normal?

Yes this is normal, it's where the two ends of the metal edge meet.

how big is the gap? Would you have noticed if you didn't go over it inch for inch or is it blatantly obvious? If it's super obvious, I'd consider sending it back on warranty sooner than later. Better to avoid further separation by sacrificing now. If its really small, I wouldn't worry. Unless you're riding switch a lot, you won't see enough action there for much further damage to occur.

The clear substance lines the base of the gap, and there is a little space between the upper part.
